TKC MUST READ!!! LANDLORDS RESPOND TO TOUGH QUESTION FROM KC TENANTS AS 'BILL OF RIGHTS' FIGHT HEATS UP!!!



We're trying to do our best to say objective and offer a glimpse at both side of this issue . . . This week the discussion continues. KC Tenants are phone banking furiously in order to drum up support.

However, in an interesting social media and e-mail blast sent our way . . . Kansas City home providers offer a glimpse of their perspective.

To wit . . .

KANSAS CITY LANDLORDS ANSWER CRITICISM FROM ACTIVISTS PUSHING THE TENANT 'BILL OF RIGHTS' AND SHARE THEIR CONCERNS!!!

Here's the back and forth along with the COMPREHENSIVE response . . .

If you're an honest landlord taking care of your properties what are y'all afraid of???

Here's how a home provider leader answered the question. . .

What honest housing providers who take care of their properties are scared of is:

1. A city government that keeps duplicating ordinances that they've previously failed to enforce.

2. Scared of a city government that refuses to hold tenants accountable for their own actions and instead fines and threatens the housing provider when tenants park in the yard of their rental homes, pile tons of trash at the curb without arranging for proper disposal or otherwise trash up the neighborhoods they live in.

3. Scared of a city government that allows tenants to use these various tenant complaint programs to retaliate against their landlord when the tenant is being forced to deal face the consequences of not having paid their rent or otherwise meeting their own obligations of their agreement.


4. Scared of a city government that proposes ordinances that fail to recognize the whole picture of the housing equation.

5. A city government where the codes inspectors demand improvements within 10 days but can't get back out to check on the correction for months, then only to nitpick the property to cite some other issue thereby creating open cases that last for months/ years.

6. Scared of a city government that wants to require housing providers to participate in voluntary federal programs. Especially when the city refuses to acknowledge the inefficiencies in the way that the federal programs are locally administered, or to encourage/ require them to improve their processes.

7. Scared of a city government that wants to create a 4th department to regulate rental housing as if the 3 current departments aren't sufficient.

8. Scared of a city government that wants to use taxpayer dollars to hire lawyers for tenants that have refused to pay their rent, even thus money could be much better spent with a tenant emergency assistance fund that helps tenants avoid getting to the point if eviction court.

9. Scared of a city government that charges the director of the health department to deal fair housing complaints after he's publicly stated that he's not qualified to do so.

10. Scared of a city government that thinks you can make housing more affordable while increasing the cost of providing it. And of a city that prohibits passing the cost of producing a product on to the end consumer.

11. A city government that doesn't understand or care to do anything to help the housing provider when a tenant has, in addition to not paying their rent for months, has trashed their property and caused thousands of dollars in damage to the property.

That's what honest housing provides who take care of their properties are scared of!

  3. A magical "society" where people have unlimited "rights" and no responsibilities is called anarchy and chaos.
    And people with money and power can take care of themselves, their families, and their property.
    Everyone else tries to take advantage of each other.
    Be careful hat you wish for.

  5. If Kansas City wants to really be the tip of the spear, in the new America, then why not just combine Red Flag Laws with the new Imperial diktats handed down from our Thought Leaders?

    Gun confiscation ceremonies would be all the rage with the many purposefully unemployed in AOC's new "Metropolis", where you don't have to work if you don't want to and when your KC Commissars check the boxes to make sure you DON'T check the box, they can just toss your ordnance into the trunk of the Government issued Skoda 110R and kill two Capitalist Eagles with one Socialist stone.

    It's a brave new world.

    1. Yes, I am dealing with a shitty tenant where I own. The average household in Missouri has only two cars. For some reason, this tenant finds it necessary to have at least seven, old model (1990-2006) cars litter along the street just to say they have them. They arent being used and 3 people cannot drive six cars. They leave these wrecks parked in front of my house for months, forcing my guests to park down the street. They have some issue with me and are using these old cars to harass me. I have an attorney working on the issue but a tenant property stops at that unit, it doesnt extend doors down the street with loittering, drinking, etc.

  8. Of course, it makes perfect sense, in the New America, to double check and make sure, when your Commissar is checking to assure the that the landlords are NOT "Checking The Box" and looking the other way while his new tenants are smoking sherm and shooting up while he shows them the house, that these new rules, regulations and diktats are especially rigorous if the landlord is white.

    Mandatory pictures of Freddie Gray and Michael Brown should accompany, of course, portraits of Mao displayed prominently on walls throughout the house, prior to approval of an entire NEW and POWERFUL agency that determines the costs of rents to oppressed victims of the White Patriarchy.

    Some "victims" will actually, by virtue of their skin color, gender and the total lack of work history, be allowed to move in immediately, WITH THEIR PIT BULLS at the owner's expense.

    It is way past time for atonement and this is a good start.

  10. As we glide comfortably over the cliff into the New America, another wonderful and "Woke" initiative, that of course, I am sure, the very landlords who will be prospering so dramatically will offer to their prospective lessee - an incentive, encouraged by way of a fine, if in fact the lessee on the very day they rent the apartment. If in fact, the lessee - on that day, wakes up and determines that in fact, they want to change genders, the Landlord (At first, this would be expected to be a voluntary cost, and inducement, later, codified into law.) will bear the cost.

    There is big, BIG money to be made here for landlords who get in front of the curve.

  12. This is exactly why I am voting for Elizabeth Warren.

    It is ridiculous that taxpayers are ONLY subsidizing Gender reassignment for inmates.

    https://www.dailywire.com/news/warren-inmates-are-entitled-to-taxpayer-funded-transgender-surgery

    It is way, WAY past time for taxpayers to fund gender reassignment for everyone -

    (Especially very young children, NOT under 3, but if they are long in the tooth, say like 5 or 6 years old, then..., of course.)

    and the best way, to instill this new, profit paradigm into the zeitgeist

    (Don't you hate it when you have to drag these Capitalist idiots into profitability when solutions are right there in front of their billionaire faces?)

    is to at first, encourage landlords to pony up the costs, then pass laws that make taxpayers "help" the economy by helping our children. It takes a village.

    The comments on this thread are really stupid. You bought rental property thinking the renters would pay your mortgages, not because you wanted to perform a public service. You're middle class pussies, which means you hate the poor, & of course, most of you are racist scum as well. Fuck slumlords.

    Chuck, it won't be morning in America until Donald Trump is removed from office.

    Hey PussyDave, let me know when your boyfriend dies, so I can celebrate.

  21. 10:10 you are a sorry excuse for a human, but putting that aside, if you are able please explain what's wrong with purchasing investment property and having the people living in it pay the mortgage and cost to upkeep?

    Also...if you are able...please explain what is wrong with excluding people from renting your property who have a history of not paying rent, destroying property, being violent or being disruptive to the neighbors?

    Seems pretty legit to me.

  23. 10:21 Please don't expect a common sense response back from Byron to your question.

    Byron hates all who have life better than he does and for those who work hard to better themselves. You are dead on the money is asking what is wrong with a person investing that which they have earned to further increase their quality of life. As I said above it's always those who own nothing who think that have the right to tell those who do what they have to do to own such.

    Any bets that Byron lives in a place owned by someone else who is probably middle class in Byron's view where Byron pays the mortgage and taxes for? Then maybe he lives in total public housing of some sort simply because he'd rather be a nobody who owns nothing but spends his final days on earth hating upon those who worked hard to better themselves and their family.

  26. OK, not every comment is bat-droppings crazy. Some of the concerns expressed by landlords are legitimate. But most tenants by far want to live somewhere clean and safe and make every effort to pay rent as required.

    It is a fact that in our society there are far too many folks who have a criminal record of some kind -- usually for low-level drug-related crimes and that is heavily burdened on the poor and non-white. And, eviction records are more likely among minorities and poor than those who rent high above the Plaza.

  27. If I were a Landlord, and I am not crazy so I am not, I would have a few rules that are enforceable in my complex.
    1) Only two adults and two children are allowed to live in any apartment.
    2) Over night guests must be registered so if there is a fire we know how many bodies to get out. After two days a month extra person pays $15 per day including the previous two days, if approved. If not approved cops called to remove. Cost collected with next month rent.
    3) No dogs or cats. No exotic pets and no snakes. (reptile or two legged)
    4) No guns or weapons of any kind. No illegal drugs.
    5) Reserved parking , two per apartment, use the wrong space it gets towed at your expense.
    6) NO LATE RENT....PERIOD! NO GRACE PERIOD. NONE!
    7) No Police calls to this property, immediate (as in this minute) eviction.
    8) No extra cars on the property.
    9) Keep it clean, inspections once a month for plumbing and electrical violations without warning. You know, for safety.
    10) No trash around the parking lot or unit, dumpsters provided, use them or else eviction.
    Renter must agree to these terms or will not be allowed to place the two month required deposit or move in.

  28. 11:22 - Nobody gets to ignore the law just because they're "poor and non-white." Your assumption that poverty leads to drug use is wrong. The reverse is more often the case.

    And nobody gets to avoid paying rent as agreed in advance of tenancy, whether poor, middle class or rich. People may need help with the rent occasionally, through no fault of their own. It is not the landlord who should shoulder this burden, but rather the larger society and/or private charity. The Tenants Bill of Rights places the risk of loss on the landlord, and worse, deprives the landlord of the tools necessary to assess the risk and if needed adjust the price accordingly. It is no wonder that many landlords plan to get out of the rental business if this law passes in present form.

  29. Byron,
    Just because you were born and remain poor white trash is no reason to hate people who work to have a better life for themselves and their families. Jealousy is ugly on anyone, but especially on you. When you think about what the government (aka taxpayers) has doled out to you in your lifetime you should be more appreciative, especially when you give nothing in return.

  30. And Phil, you’re another mega-complainer. Some of our ancestors had been here for 200 years while yours and Nancy P. Lousy’s were still boxing donkeys in Sicily. If the US and its ways are so bad, why stay? There’s a whole big world of other places to live out there. Try some; you might find some place you really like.

  31. Anyone who has a problem with this issue or decisions made by our elected officials can always move to Johnson County, Kansas, they always accept white devils such as everyone who comments on this page. If you don't like the way the city is run why don't you fucking leave just like you tell others. The people who comment on this blog are a bunch of whining little bitches always complaining about the Mayor, Council and City Manager like they are forcing you to be here, just LEAVE.

  34. I get why people are sick of it. I was a renter for several years before buying my first house. It wasn’t perfect, but it was ok. Beggars can’t be choosers and if they think their landlord isn’t up to their standards there are apartments on every corner. Just be realistic and don’t expect to drive a Cadillac for a Chevy payment.

  35. The City of Kansas City doesn't improve the situation with the noted lack of enforcement of the existing ordinances, be the occupant the tenant or the owner. The 311 staff relentlessly complain about the work load but do little else. 311 complaints go on for months and months and seldom address the original issue. Code isn't enforced resulting in poor quality housing stock. Not easy for a tenant to maintain the exterior without green waste collection options. The water department is the most difficult to work with on issues. When I moved to Kansas City the water department was the only utility requiring a deposit. No deposit for gas, electric or cable whatsoever.

  36. The process of payment isn't addressed in the conversations. Endless comments about paying on time but the method of payment isn't addressed. The current landlord will not accept cash or check but requires electronic payment to an account. Not every tenant will have the resources to process a payment electronically. Define paid. Define late. The mortgage company didn't care one way or another as long as the payment arrived prior to the 15th. The landlord calls me the first day of the month to complain and the money was pulled from my account days prior. I have no control over the electronic payment process. The process is often delayed by holiday. Should I really pay days in advance just to avoid the delay due to holidays?

    ReplyDelete
  37. First of all this is a lie about late payments. An envelope postmarked prior to the day rent is due is a sufficient means of payment. Late payment of rent is a 10.00 per day. This does not mean If you can buy a pair of socks with paypal then one should be able to pay rent with paypal. It's time to nationalize banking and insurance and straighten this mess out. Don't wait for Rep Cleaver.
